americans in community colleges. that's real change. i want us to live up to this country's legacy. we're not just building cars again, we're building better cars. cars that by the middle of the next decade will go twice as far on a gallon of gas. that kind of innovation, that kind of forward-thinking, we don't have to restrict it just to the auto-industry. i want to bring it back on all kinds of things. we've got thousands of workers building wind turbines all across the country. profits, when they're making money hand-over-fist, i want to support energy jobs of tomorrow which will cut oil costs in half, help our environment and our national growth. i want to reward companies that are creating those jobs in virginia. that's the future i see to this country. as long as i'm commander in chief,we'll pursue our energies with the strongest military the world has ever known. and virginia carries more than its load when i comes to defending this country. and we are grateful to this state. but we also understand to be strong, it's time to use some of the savings from winding down two wars to

-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of black citizens. it doesn't tell us much about the narrow arena of electoral arena for black candidates. maybe you've noticed there's not one african-american in the united states senate. we're called 2008 with an open seat race. unpopular wars, a crushing -- a nation that was crashing in terms of the economy and exhausted the with the incumbent george w. bush opened the door wide for a democrat to win. throughout american history, race has been a disqualifier even if favorable, political circumstances. not in 2008. overall, american voters did not -- this is meaningful if imperfect progress. in three days, we'll learn if america's first black president will be re-elected. the conditions are very different this time around. he is the incumbent, the economy is still limping and it may be harder generally to win reelection of our previous 42 presidents. only 16 were elected to two terms. if america doesn't choose president obama again,

of probability. but now the question shifted from who will win to what are the voters trying to tell us? and not even nate did definitively answer that. here's what we do know. voters turned out for president barack obama in droves. despite having a somewhat smaller electoral map than in 2008, this is one of the biggest democratic wins since fdr. with florida now colored blue, the president had secured a wide electoral surplus and a sizable popular vote margin. now, the popular vote win was made possible by people who lined up in huge numbers to vote in states like louisiana or new york or south carolina, which weren't in play in terms of their electoral votes. they weren't going to be needed. but who were nonetheless determined to cast their ballots for the president. as a result, this president's win was bigger than jfk's in 1960, bigger than richard nixon in 1968, bigger than jimmy carter's in 1976 and bigger than george w. bush's in 2000. no denying it. it was a big win. and as i said before, size does matter. at least when it comes to laying claim to a mandate. so the president may
